PATH OF THE WATER DRAGON

image34

MIZURYU

MIZURYU (the Water Dragon) has a sleek serpentine body that slithers through the sea with incredible speed. The Water Dragon emerges from the depths only long enough to drag its opponent under. Gifted in the ways of trickery, the Water Dragon uses its supple body to entangle its prey, immobilizing them long enough to deliver a deadly bite. The Water Dragon’s gift to the Ninja is guile and swiftness.

THE WATER NINJA

Water is the second level of the Kurai Kotori Ninja’s elemental training. It is here the Water Ninja learns about fluidity, speed and power. These are the aspects of fighting that are imperative to the Ninja. To be able to sidestep attacks, over extend the opponent as they attack and blow through them with wave-like power. The essence of this training is to teach the Ninja to anticipate attacks, redirect them, and ultimately apply immobilizing joint locks, controls and/or strikes.
